Monkey Socks are FINISHED!

Took 11 days.....pictures *will* be forthcoming; we need to set up the light box so I can show you just how *hideous* this colorway is. :grin:

The pattern was easy to memorize; the 11 rounds went quickly. I changed the ribbing to 2x2, and did my standard heel: Eye of Partridge, with 5 stitches of garter stitch on each edge. It took 5 pattern repeats for my foot, with 4 rows of knit between the last pattern row and the first row of the toe.

I'm tickled with 'em....the pattern really toned down the yarn.

Now, off to re-draft my hat so I can CO for it!
